Benefits of a turbo engine
There are two primary advantages turbocharged engines give drivers. They have greater power density and they are more efficient, the latter of which might mean more to more people. Basically, a turbocharger is connected to an engine to give it more power. This allows smaller engines to put out more horsepower and torque than they ordinarily would. Turbochargers utilize the engine’s hot, expelled air to spin the compressor wheel and take in outside air. This reduces the amount of waste produces. So, when driven carefully, a turbo engine can actually be more efficient than a naturally aspirated one.
